Seminar on Urban Transformation.
Clemens, Donald J., Ed.; And Others
Using a grant under Title I of the Higher Education Act, during the 1967-1968 school year Paducah Junior College initiated a series of semindars for community leaders on the problems of urbanization. The program subsequently was expanded--(1) to present a series of public lectures on topics related to community needs, (2) to creat a working relationship between the city administration and the academic community to gather data on community conditions by using the research facilities of the university, and (3) to initiate an experimental program in the performing arts in disadvantaged areas to develop rapport which could be used in solving community problems. The public lectures, which make up the bulk of the report, deal with urban renewal efforts in St. Louis, a low-income housing project in Paducah, the status of civic beautification in the city, and ways that a community can attract desirable industry. Also included is a brief descriptive final report on the activities and expenditures of the project. (EF)
